Is It The Weather?

Argh. For two days now I have been aching. Is it going to rain or has it been too much knitting and not sitting correctly or picking up too many kids at one time? It started yesterday morning with a "crick" in my neck. By evening it was down into my shoulderblade. Arthritis is a wonderful thing, not. It hits you when you least expect it. You also are never sure if it is the arthritis or something else. So you take a little Tylenol and remember that next week is your Remicade infusion. Sometimes I forget that it is almost time for it. Other times I ache. Ah, RA, the misunderstood disease. It is not like the arthritis everyone complains about. It is an autoimmune disease that attacks everywhere in your body. Once it is there it does not go away it only subsides for a while. You feel like you always have the flu. You are tired all the time. Dang it is a pain. Really.

The weather does not help us when we have lovely autoimmune conditions! Feel better soon! Hugs!
